Project description

The requirement of the client is to replace obsolete access control systems for all nuclear power generation facilities and to upgrade those systems’ capacity. The facilities include 20 plants in France, with 19 in operational condition.

Assystem was commissioned to meet this need for physical protection of its sites.

Assystem's mission is to assist site technicians with any difficulties they meet, to act as "manufacturer" of access control, intrusion and video surveillance equipment for the client (i.e. to repair or arrange for the repair of any elements found defective, to ensure the delivery of spare parts and to provide technical monitoring of the equipment over time). The scope includes level 3, 4 and 5 maintenance operations according to the AFNOR X60-010 standard.
